    How is it BTW that Ocasio says she can't afford a place to rent in DC until the paychecks start coming in? DC has had rent control since before she was born. I thought dems claimed that meant affordable housing for everyone.

    Cortez suffers from the same stupidity and ignorance of all socialist. They don’t understand that in order to bring about greater opportunity, you have to create more opportunity. The Socialist view is to redistribute the existing opportunity more equally, which results in an eventual lack of opportunity for anyone EXCEPT the elites, who get to live in a parallel universe. The people would rise up and revolt, BUT, Socialist are keen on taking away any means to mount a meaningful effort by confiscating guns.

    HWR you’ve lived off the government teat too long. I honor your service in the Navy and as a teacher but it skews your outlook on economics a thriving economy does have ups and downs, winners and losers. The need to struggle to survive makes us stronger. I’m afraid you’re too tied to the mantra of big government has a responsibility to take care of everyone and there can’t be any losers.
    That’s the same concept socialism has. It is corrosive and destructive to any society.
    That’s one think that troubles me about so called never Trumper conservatives (like Max Boot, Jennifer Rubin and Joe Scarbourgh) who have advocated voting for these left wing democrats to teach the republicans a lesson for supporting Trump. Well you all know I can’t stand Trump but I would NEVER vote for. Democrat unless he/she were truly a conservative. I will remain and try to remake the Republicans into the party of Reagan.

    What part of giving a multi-billionaire over a billion in tax breaks is not green flowing from the government teat? Why should billionaires get subsidies and not the middle class? How many jobs could young, hungry entrepreneurs create with that much government money? I am for a level playing field, that is all.

    Companies take the risk, outlay the capital cash, sign paychecks, and they still do pay a LOT of taxes. When you are the big dog, you get the big dog bowl. Young, hungry entrepreneurs? From where? What sector? Why aren't they doing anything now? The millenials you refer to are too busy being SJW's. They aren't interested in driving business and innovation. They are interested in all of us becoming like South America. No fucking thank you.

    There are a lot of young entrepreneurs on Shark Tank. Some with great ideas and products and some that are stupid. Most of them overvalue their companies and some hold out and don't want to give up what they consider too much equity, even though by doing so they could become rich with the help of a shark. Mark Cuban is fond of telling them that it's better to own 50% of a watermelon than 100% of a grape.

    It’s all in the word TAX. Ya see, ain’t nobody giving Bezos shit .... the TAX break only let’s Amazon keep a little more of its cash flow, ..... and .... provide jobs to those so called small entrepreneurs who haven’t produced squat. Tax breaks are NOT subsidies. You want a subsidy, look no further than Green Energy, where the government actually pays the company some of the price. That’s not the case with taxes.

    This is not a semantics issue, but rather, an accounting one. The reduction in tax is identical impact on the bottom line to being given free money.
